Support for XP patches after Microsoft end of support.


Existing Patches:

Existing patches will be maintained in the feed for at least 12 months

New patches:

Any Microsoft XP patches that are distributed by Microsoft to those users who have paid for Windows XP Extended Support are not generally available.  Therefore any Windows XP Extended Support patches will not be available via the Lumension patch feed.  

Should Microsoft choose to produce any publicly accessible patches after April 8, 2014, Lumension will include these in the feed.
Note:  ZPM has the feature of configuring a software bundle to become a patch bundle.  Should a ZPM customer that has paid Microsoft for Windows XP Extended Support receive an XP patch from Microsoft, the customer will be able to use this feature to include that XP patch in their normal ZPM processes.
